Canon Character Information
Appearance: Caroline has the classic "all American" girl look. She has blonde hair and blue eyes and is very attractive. She prefers to dress in colourful clothing that shows off plenty of skin.

History: Caroline @ The Vampire Diaries Wiki

Personality:

Before she became a vampire, Caroline was, as she herself put it, an insecure, neurotic control freak. After becoming a vampire, she was all this, but amplified. At first, she was devastated at becoming a vampire, unable to deal with all her many emotions and blood lust. But even though she did not initially want to live this way, she also didn't want to die, and so she pushed herself to learn how to live as a vampire.

Caroline was always a "queen bee" type, which led to her being very competitive, even when it came to her friends. Much of this competitiveness was driven by her insecurities, as she often felt like she was no one's first choice. However, once she began to accept her vampire self, she became much more confident in who she was. Eventually, she came to love being a vampire and, even if she could, she would not want to go back to the girly girl of her past.

Caroline is a perfectionist to the nth degree and strives to be in control of everything, down to the tiniest detail. While this does make her an excellent party planner (provided the staff jump at her command), it can cause issues when things happen that she can't control. Caroline's breakdown after her mother's death was caused just as much by her feelings of helplessness as it was by grief.

Despite growing up in a small town, Caroline has big dreams. She wants to experience all that life has to offer her - even if she isn't technically alive. However while pursuing her dreams, she does do her best to try and live an ordinary human life, doing things like going to college with friends. However she has begun to realize that she will never really be able to have a human life and accept that perhaps this is good thing.

Caroline is a very loyal to and protective of those she loves. One reason she loves being a vampire is that she is able to protect them, even if sometimes this involves putting her life at risk, like when she tried to help Tyler deal with his werewolf curse. She is also willing to give the people she loves second, and sometimes third, chances when they mess up, though they will still have to earn her forgiveness. This caring also caused her to be unable to emotionally detach from the twins when they were born, despite the fact that she had spent the entire pregnancy saying they were not her babies.

Caroline tends to say exactly what she thinks and sometimes can be brutally honest, even around someone like Klaus who could quite easily kill her as a result. She also knows exactly what she wants and, with a few exceptions, doesn't hesitate to go after it. While at times Caroline may seem like a bit of a dumb blonde, she is actually quite clever and insightful, often able to put things together in order to come to the correct conclusion.

Powers/Abilities/Talents: Caroline's vampire abilities - because she has only been a vampire for several years, her abilities are not as strong as those of older vampires.

What 4 items would you like your character to have with them on the island during their stay?

  • A photo album full of pictures of Caroline with her friends, as well as pictures of the twins

  • The drawing of her the Klaus drew

  • Her prom dress

First Person:

Okay, I'll bite (definitely no pun intended). What the hell is going on around here? And, more importantly, how do I get home? I have two babies that need their ... me. So I can't be here. I just can't.

Plus, I'm still waiting for an explanation about how I ended up on the boat in the first place. I'm used to weird things happening, it's pretty much a side effect of living in Mystic Falls. But I've seen more things I can't explain in the last hour spent here than I did in the last year there.

So yeah. Some answers would be nice.

Third Person: Caroline @ TDM

Finally, out of the 4 words, pick one: Chimes, lake, gravel, or sun? Lake

Character information
Name: Caroline Forbes
Age: 20 (became a vampire when she was 17)
Date of Birth: October 10, 1995
Canon: The Vampire Diaries
Species: Vampire
Role: Singer at Rhapsody in Red (see Location info below)
Rank: Level 1, Islington Nest. She has been a member for a few months.

Background:

For sixteen years, Caroline Forbes lead a fairly typical, privileged existence. She was pretty and popular and completely oblivious to the relatively small supernatural community that called the town of Mystic Falls home.

Her first run in with a vampire was when she became romantically involved with Damon Salvatore. This relationship went bad fast, as Damon would feed on her, constantly erased her memories, and used mind control on her so that she would do his bidding.

Her second encounter was even worse. When she was 17, Caroline was in a car accident and was seriously injured. To help her heal, she was given Damon's blood. However, soon afterwards another vampire, Katherine Pierce, snuck into Caroline's hospital room and smothered her to death. Thus, Caroline became a vampire herself.

At first, Caroline did not take well to being a vampire and found it hard to control her emotions and bloodlust. However, with the help of those around her, she managed to adjust to the change and eventually began to flourish, becoming more confident and sure of herself.

Not long after, Caroline started a relationship with Tyler Lockwood, who had only recently activated his werewolf curse. Even though she was warned that vampires and werewolves were long-time enemies, Caroline decided the relationship was worth the risk.

It was around this time that Mystic Falls was visited by the Mikaelsons, a family of Old Ones. While Caroline's contact with them was initially limited, she did eventually gain the attention of Klaus Mikaelson, who sought to use mind control to create a pack of werewolf servants, including Tyler. At first, Klaus' attention seemed to be mostly a test of his power over Tyler, but eventually he appeared to develop genuine feelings for Caroline. Caroline tried to fight her feelings for Klaus, though she did eventually come to accept on them and, after she had broken up with Tyler, gave in to the attraction she felt.

Over the years, Caroline faced many supernatural challenges. She helped Tyler in his plan to free himself and the other werewolves from Klaus' control, only to have it end with the entire pack, except for Tyler, being slaughtered. She also dealt with her best friend Elena, now a vampire herself, going through a emotional breakdown after the death of her brother, which led to Elena pushing aside all her human emotions and embracing the more predatory and sadistic side of being a vampire. Finally, she lived through the disaster which caused the doorway between the Other World and Mystic Falls to collapse, trapping both Damon and Caroline's best friend, Bonnie, on the other side.

All of this, Caroline survived, only to be undone by a normal, human event: the death of her mother, who died of cancer despite all of Caroline's efforts to save her.

Caroline, like Elena before her, tried to push away her grief. When she eventually had to deal with her emotions, Caroline decided that it was time to leave her old life behind. And so she moved to London, renting a small flat in Hackney, and began working as a singer at a local night club. She also joined the Islington nest, hoping that this would offer her security (though as it turned out, her timing was not the best when it came to such things).

With a new home and new job, she began to put the pieces of her life back together.

Powers & Possessions: As she is still a young vampire, Caroline only has the standard vampire abilities.

Her most notable possessions are a stack of fancy dresses that she "borrowed" from Klaus' collection.

Samples:

Prose sample:

Caroline's flat was tiny but she loved it, because it was hers and hers alone. One year of sharing a dorm room had been enough, even if it was with friends. She was an only child, after all; sharing had never exactly been her strong suit. So a place to herself was perfect ... or at least it would be, once it finally began to feel like home.

She looked over at the clock. She still had ten minutes or so before she had to get to work and so she pulled out her phone and quickly scrolled through the messages. She smiled to see an email from Elena and another one from Bonnie. She scanned them quickly, happy to hear that college life was beginning to get back to normal for them but also sad she wasn't a part of it. But that was what she'd wanted, what she'd thought was best. There were times that she wondered though if she'd been crazy to go so far away, even if it did mean having her own place for the first time.

There were a few more emails, from store mailing lists she should probably unsubscribe from at this point. And, of course, there was nothing from Stefan.

She gritted her teeth and put the phone away. He hadn't sent her a single message since she left and it was time to stop letting that bother her. What they'd had, whatever it was ... that was the past. And the past was the reason she was here now, the reason she'd put a whole ocean between her and everything and everyone she'd ever known. New home, new life. It sounded so easy.

Some of it had been easy. Her job was good and she'd got it on her skill, rather than using mind control. Even if it wasn't her dream job by far - the club wasn't even close to nice enough for that - it was still something she'd earned fair and square. Plus, it even gave her a place to wear those dresses she'd liberated from Klaus' collection and she never turned down the chance to look pretty.

But even the job didn't keep Caroline from wondering if she'd made a mistake. Maybe she should have never left Mystic Falls, maybe she was coward to have just picked up and run away.

Right now though, it didn't matter either way - it was time to get going to work. She looked out the window, making sure there weren't any suspicious characters outside - these days, you could never be too sure. And then she put a smile on her face, fixed her hair one last time, and put one foot in front of the other.

She was going to make in London, even if she had to force herself the entire time.

Locations:

Rhapsody in Red
A night club in Hackney. It's not super seedy but also not super nice and closer to the border with Tower Hamlets than is comfortable for some people. But the drinks are cheap and the music often of much higher quality than would be expected.
